A new coronavirus mobile testing site is now up and running at Lehman College. An appointment must be made beforehand.
The new testing site is the latest to be added in the Bronx. It will be able to accommodate up to 500 tests per day and feature two lanes. The site will prioritize testing for the most vulnerable New Yorkers, first responders, and health care workers.
Appointments can be made by calling 1-888-364-3065. Anyone who does not have an appointment will be turned away.
The National Guard will be handling check-ins. They will also be receiving support from State Troopers and the NYPD, who will be checking in 2-3 times a day to ensure things run smoothly.
NYC Health and Hospitals previously announced four other sites at Lincoln and Jacobi Hospitals, the Morrisania Gotham Health Center, and the Belvis Gotham Health Center.
